Linked Color Imaging Focused on Neoplasm Detection in the Upper Gastrointestinal Tract

Linked color imaging (LCI) is a new image-enhanced endoscopy technique that allows users to recognize slight differences in mucosal color To compare the performance of LCI with white light imaging (WLI) in detecting neoplastic lesions in the upper gastrointestinal tract.. ..752 patients were assigned to the WLI group and 750 to the LCI group. The percentage of patients with 1 or more neoplastic lesions diagnosed … Continue reading Linked Color Imaging Focused on Neoplasm Detection in the Upper Gastrointestinal Tract

Timing of #Endoscopy for Acute Upper Gastrointestinal #Bleeding

To evaluate whether urgent endoscopy improves outcomes in patients predicted to be at high risk for further bleeding or death, we randomly assigned patients with overt signs of acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding and a Glasgow–Blatchford score of 12 or higher (scores range from 0 to 23, with higher scores indicating a higher risk of further bleeding or death) to undergo endoscopy within 6 hours (urgent-endoscopy … Continue reading Timing of #Endoscopy for Acute Upper Gastrointestinal #Bleeding
